Sorry. I've been spending most of my quality time over here when not cleaning or eating or drinking a lot of wine. The preparations for Passover hit me at full force 2 days before they were due to be done. The house was clean once, and now the floors are soiled with matzah crumbs. $1,000,000 for the first person to come up with matzah that isn't so crumbly.

Currently I'm busy trying to figure out if I should go to Amsterdam this June. If I do, it's going to be expensive, and I'd really rather spend $3k somewhere else. Or keep it in my savings account to make money for me. The main problem is that I have these 3 tickets to a sold-out Robbie Williams concert, and I'm horrible at selling things on eBay. And I need to make sure I get the money back that I spent on them ($270 US). What to do, what to do? The thought of not leaving the country this year is devistating. I do have trips planned for early next year, but I really need a change of scenery, a change of tongue. Somewhere I've never been. Then again, I do have friends around the country that could use some visitin'. I'm really at an impass here... I guess we'll see what happens within a couple of weeks.

In other news, spring has finally sprung here in Boise, though the days have recently been chilly and more feeling like fall than on the way to the too-soon summer we're going to get. We've had a shite-ton of rain recently, and there's been all this flooding. It's at these times when I thank G-d that there is a basement apartment below mine that will fill up with water before the rising tides start affecting my life. Not that it's actually flooding where I live. We had to turn the heaters back on and do the quick-jog before hopping into bed so we don't wake up with frozen toes. I have to head down to the post office in just a minute, and I'm not really looking forward to it. Maybe I'll stop by the coffee shop to get a big latté while I'm down there. Or I could forgo it altogether.

I also purchased another iPod and a new cellphone. Technology these days, huh?

This entry was such a waste of internet.


this is totally unrelated to your dilemma (unfortunately i cannot find a solution for you) but why did you buy another iPod? i'm just wondering why you need more than one (and i'm asking as someone who doesn't have one).

My "old" 20gig ipod was completely full, so I got a 60gig 5th generation so I wouldn't have to upgrade in another 2 years. I use my ipod everywhere - in my car, at work, while walking around town. I love having an album to suit every situation I'm in. And I just really love music. ^_^

Post the tickets on Craiglist. Or is there not a Craigslist in Boise? Ok, never mind.

There's a craigslist in boise, but I don't think that anyone in boise would purchase the tickets. Robbie Williams isn't all that popular in the states, and I think I'd have a much better chance of selling the tickets to a western european than pretty much anyone here. :(
